Do you really think that putting a picture of a dog - any dog...in
fact, *anybody's* dog - is the same thing as putting the card owner's
photo on the card?
I'm guessing she's not using the dog to identify herself. There's no
liability on the CC company's part in putting a pet or a flower or
your first car on the card.
However, if the CC company is going to put your picture on the card so
that it can be used to prove that the holder is the card owner, I'm
guessing (but I don't know for sure) that there is some liability on
their part and therefore it won't be free.
I often get asked for photo ID when using a credit card for purchases over
some small amount. Guy at the tire store asked for TWO photo IDs,for a $78
And the gas pumps where I buy gas ask for my zip code.
You maybe look like a thug? Live in a though neighborhood?
Sometimes AMEX needs the zip code punched in, but not all the time.
Never had to for any card using gas.
Don't recall ever being asked for another ID but I may have been.
Could be because I look like Tom Sellek people get confused. Yeah,
Seems to largely be place dependent. I collect shirts from both Hard
Rock Cafes and Margaritaville. No matter where I go (Key West,
Nashville, or Grand Turk) the MVille always asks for ID. The HRC, never.
Actually, MVilles are the only places I can think of all the places I go
that checks ID with about every card use.
People thought cybersex was a safe alternative,

Ugh... I just got mine for a trip overseas. We never used it. I only use
the Amex at costco and for costco online. Do you have a idea how it's
been compromised? The last time my ID was stolen we had just returned
from Rome. We used our debit card at the Hard Rock Cafe there. Really
bad idea. Not sure if that was how it happened but it was something out
of the ordinary. We got the Amex to use overseas. Maybe that wasn't a
good idea. I try to use cash overseas as much as possible and get cash
from ATMs but the cards still get used. Cash flows so fast when we are
Read a copy of the merchant's CC agreement.
They are not supposed to accept CC that is not signed, they cannot ask
for ID, and if anything is wrtitten on the CC, such as "check ID", it
is to be considered altered and is not supposed to be accepted.
When any merchant attempts to violate the agreement, I file a
complaint with the CC issuer and the merchant. I have never received
any reply supporting their action but have received apologies and one
You are not required to carry your "papers" to be presented to anyone
who makes a demand.
I rarely give my card to anyone, but it happens, and I have charged several
thousand at one time. They usually just swipe it.
I was impressed with capital one. They cancelled my card and notified me of
possible fraud. They verified with me. Photos don't work on Internet
They sent me a new card.
I wish I knew the source of the fraud.
